Handsome A Netflix Mystery Movie (2017)

download (3)

Handsome, a Netflix Mystery Movie is just what the name implies,a mystery movie on Netflix. Detective Handsome ( yes that is his name) is about to retire, and he has new neighbors. After dropping off some cookies and meeting the baby sitter, the next day he gets a call for a murder. Sadly the victim happens to be the before mentioned babysitter.

The movie does a solid job at pushing the mystery aspect of the movie with little clues here and there throughout the entire thing, and at no part did I feel like the movie was off track.  That being said for a guy like me that isn’t into mysteries it managed to keep my interest well enough. The comedy aspect was pretty nice as well, it had its fair share of humorous moments but nothing to write home about.

The movie isn’t great, and it absolutely isn’t for everyone. I wouldn’t recommend it to a guy like me for example that mostly watches horror movies or comedies, but fans of police shows will probably enjoy it more. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Emoji Movie (2017)

So the other day I am sitting at home the other day and @torstenvblog shoots me a message and says “Hey the worst movie of 2017 hit Netflix you want to cover it or should I?” So I asked him which one he meant and he replies “Emoji movie” The problem is this was about 3 hours after I had already watched the movie. He also seemed very upset when I said I didn’t think the movie was as bad as people said. In his words, “I wanted a real fucking dumpster fire” anyway on to the review.

This movie got OBLITERATED in many reviews. A lot of people hated this movie, hell you can look up many reviews and read them. But if you go to Rotten Tomatoes or even metacritc you can see an underlining thread to many many MANY of the reviews. A lot of the reviews seem to be quite pissed off that this is a movie made to be watched by a child with its parent. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not saying the movie is great or even perfect or even great.

The story is about a meh emoji that lives inside of a smart phone that has many emotions and because of this the original emoji, smiley, decides to have the anti virus erase it to save them all from being deleted when Alex factory resets his phone. Gene, the meh emji then goes on a trip to get into the cloud so he can be hacked to get rid of his other emotions. The story is just a kind of cute story about being true to yourself and simply being who you are.

As I said the movie and story aren’t perfect, in fact most adults will in fact hate the movie. However it actually isn’t badly done, it is just meant for kids. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Extract (2009)

download (1)

Extract is a rather odd movie. First it takes place mostly in a factory dedicated to making extract flavoring. Not exactly your usual movie setting. Joel our main character is trying to sell his business, but a freak accident is about to make that damn near impossible. By freak accident I mean extract gets spilled, a forklift spills stuff thigns get knocked off an oxygen tank gets shot like a torpedo and a guys balls get blown off. Yes as in his testicles.

Enter Mila Kunis, a less than moral money hungry woman trying to get a piece of the pie in this lawsuit. The movie has a few funny moments and the story is interesting enough, but to be honest I normally expect more from this cast. The movie isn’t bad but there are better movies out there. By all means check it out, but don’t expect a 5 star event. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Radius (2017)

download

Radius is an interesting movie. A man gets into a car accident, wakes up with no memory at all, and discovers that everything around him that comes within a certain distance of him inexplicably drops dead. Humans, birds doesn’t matter. Actually quite a few birds, P.E.T.A. must hate this movie.

The acting is pretty nice and the story has its ups and downs. It will waste no time getting into whats going on. The movie will start out right at him waking up which is a very good reason. The movie revolves around trying to figure out who he is, and why a mystery woman can be in his presence without dying.

The movie has very few twist and turns or anything surprising in it, except the ending. In retrospect probably should have seen it coming but somehow I did not. It is worth watching tho, best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Is there a best Star Trek Series?

entertpirse

After doing all the Star Trek movies a long time ago, I considered reviewing all the t.v. series, which hey I suppose if you guys want I can still work on. But the real question is, is there a universally best?  My father for example would swear up and down the original series was the way to go. Don’t worry, i’m not here to bash any of them. I loved them all, except the new discovery which I haven’t seen because I refuse to subscribe to another service and I hate the idea of  simply stealing it.

The original series is just that, the original. It was a bit rough at times. Plenty of over acting the special effects were primitive, but for its time it was pretty damn original. The next generation however has everything the original did, but did it better and by many is considered the best of the t.v. shows.

Deep Space Nine however took us off the enterprise and on to the space station of, you guessed it, Deep Space Nine This one actually took a different approach where the story was less from episode to episode and had a more traditional approach with an over all story. DS9 also took place at the same time as TNG, in fact many of the characters make cameos in both shows and O’Brien and worf actually become permanent parts of DS9.

Next we have Voyager which honestly was pretty much Lost in Space. Do to some jack ass species of alien the ship gets ripped to the opposite side of the galaxy and they journey home. While doing this they will run into new species, some hostile some friendly, and discover new things about the Borg.

Last but not least we have Enterprise. This show is about the early days of Earth exploration, before the Federation even existed. This show was quite interesting but for many reasons never seemed to take off.

But was there an objectively best? I don’t think so. I truly think it comes down to the old fashioned age argument. Older people love the original because they saw it first and it was new. Others in between saw it in reruns but fell in love with TNG, others may love the over all stories of DS9 and Voyager. But at the end of the day it comes down to people loving the world itself. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
